Music Monday

Hey guys welcome to week two of Music Monday. Wish I could say I was bringing you guys a Talicha J. original but alas, I’m still slacking on the music making front. So with that said I bring you a great artist that I have been following for a few years now. Her name is Alexz Johnson and she is a Canadian singer/songwriter with an amazing voice. If you have never heard her sing before then you are in for a treat! The song that I’m going to share with you all today is off of her latest EP, Skipping Stone. I really love that although she has worked with big companies, she has independently released her last album entitled Voodoo as well as this EP. Alexz has definitely been inspiring to me as a songwriter because she shows that you don’t have to be with a large label to release great albums that reach the people. Anyways, here goes Skipping Stone:

I took in the most that I could
I never imagined that I would
Be feeling so misunderstood
Mmmm just following lines
You race in my mind like a car
You’ve beaten my heart so damn far
And now I’ve been pacing the wall
‘Cause you’re under my hurt

Never thought I could
Love you no never
Never thought that I would
Ever try to be anything better

My heart’s beaten better alone
And if it is broke
Why let you know
This heart’s not your skipping stone
If I’m sinking water
Then why even bother
Just leave it alone
Mmmm this heart’s not your skipping stone

So maybe I should settle down
And find a new man
Let him throw my world around
All his blueberry lies
I know there isn’t a room
Was left in the desk now
It’s time to school
Mmmm now, I’m a lovesick fool

Never knew that you
Could just hold me hostage
I’m losing my cool
Through the pain somehow
Don’t want you to stop it

My heart’s beaten better alone
And if it is broke
Why let you know
This heart’s not your skipping stone
If I’m sinking water
Then why even bother
Just leave it alone
Hmmm ’cause this heart’s not your skipping stone

All the time
I never let you in
Was a lie
I wasn’t letting you in
And on the date
You let me cry
Was a lie

My heart’s beaten better alone
And if it is broke
Why let you know
This heart’s not your skipping stone
If I’m sinking water
Why even bother
Just leave it alone

If it is broke
Why let you know
This heart’s not your skipping stone
If I’m sinking water
Why even bother
Just leave me alone

Hope you guys enjoyed Alexz Johnson’s Skipping Stone. Check out more of her here and be sure to check back next week for #MusicMonday
